I agree with all of you, and thank you for the replies.
Ncjohnboy, I dont think i've ever seen an apple product get more expensive!
from my expirience they always get cheaper and better (glossy screens not included),
though as always everything is open to debate.
I don't "need" the computer more than I want it, as i'm sure all of you here could relate with on some level,
so waiting a month is not going to be that big of a deal. I'm going to be using this computer minute editing
when not at home, for taking notes in class, and for when i'm on the surfing/email on the couch. I have a dedicated computer
for photography. All this to say that it doesnt really matter for me if a new better mac comes out, and the existing ones
are complete overkill for my needs, though when one is spending $1500+ is it always a nice feeling to know you've
done well. Not to mention the cool factor of their latest generation upgrades are through the roof : )
I'm going to check out all of the websites, and again, thank you
